New 3dmark 11, stock voltage, +110/+200 (1162 Mhz/1150 Mhz respectively): NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3770K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. MAXIMUS V FORMULA score: P21296 3DMarks I've got texture filtering in NVCP set to high quality (default is quality), BF3 ultra settings + FXAA mod and it gets fps from 100-200 :D Man I'm loving these beasts. Performance wise they are as fast or faster than 3 x 680 SLI overclocked.

Comparison:

1. Tri-SLI 680 OC: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6335491

2. SLI Titan OC: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6424575

Titan SLI is much smoother in games than Tri-SLI, far less stutter...in fact I don't notice microstutter at all with Titan SLI. Other sites that tested SLI Titan showed that it actually can have less latency than a single card. Nvidia did an awesome job with these.

Very nice indeed. You just beat my old overvolted OC,d 680 lightning SLI score (20.6k) and with a lesser CPU too. Those Titans are beasts! ;)

What PCI-E are you running with these cards? I assume both cards are at least x8?

Yeah if you compare the gpu score the 680s don't come close. These titans are matching 3 x 680 oc.

Both are x8.

Yeah that's awesome. My 680 Lightnings were running @ around 1400mhz or so if i rememeber.. and 1.3v though which is really pushing it on water and that was pretty good at the time but can't beat new technology..

Look how much they kill Even OV lightnings... Titans FTW! :o

This was mine:

That's a nice score, the 3930K's extra cores definitely inflate the overall score thanks to Physics :D I was getting about 21K with the 680s I had on air + 1.2v. These Titans are certainly beasts, I think if I did a full OC it could probably do 33k GPU easily.

Just ordered a pair of EVGA backplates for these. Doesn't do much for functionality but just looks great.

Anyone hear of nvidia's answer to 7990 yet? Possibly a 790GTX using two cut down Titan LEs with 5GB VRAM each? $999. Performance between Titan and Titan SLI.

Yeah it's called 690 and has been around a year.

ROFL

So true!

Plus CF-X on a card is not a good idea right now, CF-X in general really.

Hmmm as a dual 690 user I have to disagree here. The 690 is castrated when it comes to compute, GK110 definitely isn't. Also the 2GB framebuffer per GPU is quite outdated in comparison. A dual GK110 board for $1k would rock. :)

The 2GB is definitely a point but compute power is not a factor for consumer gaming cards.

In all the game benches I've seen so far the 690 and the 7990 are within a few FPS, which makes sense given the cores they're based on. They're obvious competitors, nvidia just got their card out way earlier.

I agree about both points on compute power - nvidia definitely nerfed it, which sucks for those hoping to save money on pro cards, but it's not terribly relevant to most people.

7990 makes no sense unless you really want xfire on a single slot. Two 7970s cost $800 and would o/c better. If you're into that thing. My experience with 7900 series (for gaming) is they tend to have great numbers on paper but gaming they *feel* slower if that makes sense. They are great if you're into DC projects or mining though.

Have you upgraded to triple titan yet? Once you've got two it's hard to stop there...

Still, it is a reference design PCB. when can we get a fully utilized GK110 core base not-reference extreme design? I mean Titan Ultra or whatever you wana call it. I bought 8 Titans just for folding, not a single one I would use for gaming, because its limited OC potential and its look is not sexy enough to fit in my gaming rig. since they sell this stuff in such a premium price, I would expect the Nvidia should release a extreme BIOS file with no limits in terms of temp or voltage for those who want to OC the crap out of it, otherwise GTX 780 is a much better choice for gaming

      After spending significant time and effort to obtain "DC" screen for 8770w (which is essentially a regular IPS panel with fancy board that converts 8bpc LVDS to 10bpc DP), I have finally got and installed one. All works great, except of the one problem...

      It has pretty bad banding / posterization in lower shadows. I have tried profiling it in different modes (full range, sRGB, rec709) - issue persists, and it indeed shows only in the lowest part of the characteristic curve. Mids and highlights are represented fine and show low deviation from reference values.

      GPU is HP K4000M, Nvidia drivers installed "as it is", video-card is identified without a hitch.
      Banding was not present with the original TN panel using the same GPU.
       
      While checking a software side, I have noticed that Win10 has bit depth set to 8-bit...
       

       
      My initial reaction was, - "Easy, let's change it in `nvidia-settings` and we're all set":

      ...but that would be too easy, right? After selecting 10bpc and clicking "Apply" screen went off and back on, only to show that depth stayed at 8bpc. Repeating the above few times yielded exactly the same result and I'm not in a hurry to meet a cliched (and laymen) definition of insanity.
       
      Let's check GPU-Z. So far so good, nothing unusual. Notice the highlighted BIOS version and subvendor string:
       
      Time to delve into other tabs. We are running WDDDM v2.4 which supports GPU dithering, but hey... BIOS version has changed!
       
      Briefly back to `nvidia-settings` to check what is reported by vendor's own utility:

       
      So far, we have two strings for BIOS version:
      80.04.5A.00.02 (let's call it an "A") 80.4.33.0.37 (let's call it a "B")  
      Notice how 2nd one seems to not follow hexademical notation. Lastly, "NVIDIA BIOS" drop-down, reports "A" version:
       
      ...and monitor section which confirms that rig is indeed capable of 10bpc, but currently running at mere 8bpc:

       
      Windows "Adapter settings", reports version "B". It's 2019, diversity is a must.

       
      "NVidia inspector" is of the same opinion:

       
      Now, let's use some seriously legit tools and check-in exported BIOS file in `nvflash`:

       
      Here we have two three interesting findings:
      Reported vendor is Dell, not an HP. See this link for details. BIOS version is back to "A". Have I already mentioned diversity? MXM module uses MX25L2005 flash storage in WSON-8 packaging. If things go real nasty, we should be able to rescue a patient via Pomona clip and external programmer.  
      Loading the same file in "Kepler BIOS tweaker" confirms the facts:

       
      EDID settings, courtesy of NVidia Control Panel. Hex dump can be found at the bottom of this post.
      ...Shall I be worried about "60.02Hz" refresh rate?
       
      To summarize:
      Why two different BIOS versions are reported? Anything to do with UEFI (e.g. HP is sideloading its own during boot)?.. Why two different vendors reported? As far as I remember, this is branded HP GPU. Where to get "clean" BIOS of K4000M for future experiments? Ideally from 8770w equipped with "DreamColor" panel from a factory.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.

      I got the exp gdc beast 8.5 got all the connections right... laptop boots up... fans turn on the gpu.... device manager detects gtx 1060 with a “ ! “ in a yellow triangle. Now what to do.... i tried to do the bios mod.... but realised that i have 3.07 version. 
      Questions-
      1 is there any way to get this done without the mod?? 
      2 if mod is the only way... kindly help me with step by step instruction in laymans terms... i m not a techy... so i might not understand technical terms.... altho i am interested... but learning yet. Please help.

      Hello all
       
      I have a Clevo P370EM3 laptop with a pair of GTX 680Ms in SLI mode and have never been able to get Linux to work properly with full acceleration and without tearing. I have tried every xorg config I can find, and even all the modifications from the nvidia configurator to no avail. Has anyone been able to get these things to work 100% in Linux? I have typically used ubuntu based distros, including Mint, and every available driver version from the repositories, but can never get it to work quite right.
       
      Thanks for any help anyone can provide. It is killing me to run Windows on this machine because of these issues, and I am almost to the point of installing the inferior 7970 cards.
       
      Have a great day

      Help! I created a BOS BOOT DISK and use legacy to boot in DOS.   But it is saying that "An operating system wasn't found".   I have extracted all the files (the alienware m18x r2 a11 unlocked bios) into my external hard drive (format: NTFS)
